SEOFON TIMES ON RUN HOME [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953
SEOFON TIMES ©N RUN HOME MELBOURNE, Saturday. - After having a lead of three lengths approaching the turn, Sydney filly Seofon weakened badly and finished only sixth in the -St. Albans Stakes at Moonee Valley to-day. Winner was Spritsail, from Lovely Day and Melarko. Spritsail, who was having his first race, surprised owner-breeder, Mr. E. A. Underwood, vice-chairman of the V.R.C. committee." Mr, Underwood said he bad beengprepared to see his colt give a forward display, but had not expected him to win because he had had insuf- ficient training. Spritsail's success empha- sised the misfortune of Syd- ney 'trainer, Harry Darwon. His colt, AJ.C. Breeders' Plate winner Lindbergh, who was balloted out of the race, scored an easy victory over Spritsail in work this week. Before acceptances on Thursday Darwon said he be- lieved Lindbergh to be a cer- . tainty. Balloting ~out~ of Lind- bergh with two others has caused considerable criticism of the system. It has been contended that _, Li c...
Well-backed All Jeep In Handicap Win Canterbury Track Suits [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953
Well-backed AU Jeep I ii Handicap Win Canterbury Track Suits All Jeep lived up to his reputation as a specialist on the track when he won the Canterbury Park Handicap - yesterday. All Jeep was heavily backed. He beat Toss- ing by half a neck in a photo finish, with Pon- ' dicherry third, a length and a half back. All Jeep, who has an outstanding country record to his credit, has registered most of his metropolitan wins on the Canterbury track. TOSSING TRIED . His last win in the city was ia this race 12 months ago. All Jeep is raced by Mr. V. J. Byrnes who won the 1948 Epsom Handicap with De La Salle. After his Canterbury win last year All Jeep went back to the bush where he showed good form to win many races,, including the Narrabri Cup. He then was brought back to the city where his form has been good enough re- cently to suggest he was about to return to his ' top form. He finished a sound fifth behind Top Level in the Pagewood Handicap' at Randwick a fortnight ago and, because o...

The Story Of Victoria Barracks . A Place In History. [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953
The Barracks in 1871. The Story Of Victoria Barracks IT is hard to imagine that Victoria Barracks (more than 100 years old) and in- deed practically the whole of the suburb of Padding- ton, were built on exten- sive sand dunes. Much of the area now occupied by the Eastern Suburbs was formerly unin- viting sandhills. Before Victoria Barracks were built, the Imperial troops garrisoned in Sydney were quartered in the old barracks on the site of what is now Wynyard Square - named after Major-General E. B Wynyard, an early nv'i'ary commandant ID New South Wales. In the thirties of last cen- tury, Sydney was enveloping the barracks in the heart of the town, and after much negotiation between the New South Wales author- ities and the British Board of Ordnance, in whose name the Barracks site was vested, a change of site was decided The site selected was on the sandy, scrub-covered slopes of what was to be- come the suburb of Pad- dington, on the old track leading from Sydney to South Head,...

FEATURES Family Prayer Is a Potent Force RELIGION AND LIFE [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953
?».WS Family M*iuyer Ms e% Potent Farce RELIGION AND LIFE By MONSIGNOR FREEMAN It is not without significance that just at a time when wc have reached a stage of scientific - development unequalled in history, we are com plaining with due apprehension of the weakening of family ties and the incipient disintegration of family life. T[T would seem that for * all our progress and ex- pansion in other fields of human knowledge, we have not yet perfected an effective formula for the simple art of living to- gether in a family. To those who are blessed with a wholesome home life, this kind of talk may seem rather remote and more than a little exagger- ated. But there are others who note with uneasiness the soaring divorce rate, the sharp incidence of juvenile delinquency and the many examples of almost casual conjugal disloyalty. On these matters sociolo- gists and legislators have their own ideas and their own responsibility, but once again many of these will readily admit that the fun- ...

Yet Once Again— "The Ninth" RECORDS [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953
Yet Once Again "The Ninth" RECORDS BEETHOVEN'S Ninth Symphony has been called many times the grandest peak in music. Just as mountaineers (lie world over want (o scale Everest, so the world's recording companies, apparently, have had a secret urge to essay the Ninth. A/TOST of them seem -?--*- to have made the attempt at the same time. The number of new recordings of this once rarely recorded symphony is becoming almost preposterous. The Philips version, just released on the Australian "market, is an honest Tand satisfying effort; a perform- ance which comes close to greatness but does not quite achieve it-failing, it might be said, a few hundred years from the top. Willem van Otterloo con- ducts the Hague Residency Orchestra with precision and distinction, and the sound engineers have supported him well with a clean, reson- ant recording, marred by only a few fuzzy patches. Obviously van Otterloo has been influenced by the mag- nificent old Weingartner re- cording (although he does...

QUIET DEATH OF A SONGWMTER FEW of the millions of Americans who whistle and sing his songs every day knew last week that Fred Ahlert, one of his country's most popular composers, was dead. From Our New York Office [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953
QUIET DEATH OF A SONGWMTER FEW oí the millions of Americans who whistle and sing his songs every day knew last week that Fred Ahlert, one of his country's most popular composers, was dead. From Our New York Office AHLERT, the creator of such hits as "Where the Blue of the Night Meets the Gold of the Day," "Walkin' My Baby Back Home," and many others, was pro- bably the most retiring of contemporary song writers, who inhabit an industry where personal build-up usually de- mands as much atten- tion as talent. According to New York's famed Tin Pan Alley, Fred Ahlert looked and acted more like a quietly success- ful businessman than a song writer. But perhaps he combined both song writing and busi- ness acumen more than any other composer to-day. At 61, when he died last week of a heart ailment, he was probably one of the wealthiest composers on Tin Pan Alley, with a home in Hollywood, a palatial Man- hattan apartment and a country residence in Massa- chusetts. Born in New York in 1892,...
Jet Propulsion Not So Novel The Nature Of Things [Newspaper Article] — The Sun-Herald — 25 October 1953
Jet Propulsion Not So Novel TN this age of metoric *? speed in aircraft, let us not overlook some simple facts about jet propulsion in the world of nature. However exciting our new jet engines are to-day, the reality is that nature herself first used the principle of power and movement from a jet thrust. But, it all started in the sea-and not in the air. (Anyway, it's just as well perhaps that we weren't given jet-propelled kooka- burras, or some other flying animal!) Jet-propulsion, in a primi- tive form, finds its oldest and widest use among a group of weird sea creatures that science names cephalopods. The best known of these, to most of us, are the octo- pus, .squid, and cuttlefish, those, soft, baggy things with a pair of bright eyes and a mass of squirming tentacles that are usually dotted with suckers. Now that the warmer weather is taking you down to the seaside, you'll be see- ing any number of these marine oddities. They are common all round the Aus- tralian coast. In the ...
